Team Deliverable 1: Overview

From:     Lani Uyeno

To:         Hali'a Interns

Subject: Team Deliverable 1



Your team has been assigned its first client, Moses Kealoha, who has written to the company stating that he has submitted memoirs to several publishing firms, each rejected, with a note attached to “use more showing and less telling.”

For Team Deliverable 1, your team is to write a letter (approximately 250 words) to Mr. Kealoha to help him with his problem.  You will want to do the following:

1.             Define “showing” and “telling.”

2.             Offer two examples taken from your research, one of writing that shows, and the other that tells.  Discuss how these examples illustrate the difference between the two methods.

3.             Document your sources using MLA documentation style.


You may want to start by researching material on the concepts of showing versus telling. Also, be sure to familiarize yourself with the Halia’s way of writing letters as detailed in Hali'a's Document Style Guide.

Please have your project team leader email me your draft of Team Deliverable 1.  (Team Leaders:  see the Daily Assignments sheet for deadline to send in draft.)  Be sure to read through the Requirements, Resources, and Debrief for Team Deliverable 1 before starting your work.
